Yu-Gi-Oh/Synchro/Xyz Deck


I've been trying to build a decent, Advanced-Format deck that can Summon «Red Nova Dragon» without having to over-extend or buy an excess of Hidden Arsenal 6 packs (for the «Laval», of course). Could you rate my deck and suggest some fixes, please? And possibly suggest a Side Deck?

Monsters (21)
1 Attack Gainer
1 Barrier Resonator
1 Cyber Dragon
1 Dark Tinker
3 Disciple of the Forbidden Spell
1 Field-Commander Rahz
1 Flare Resonator
1 Goblindbergh
1 Junk Forward
2 Junk Synchron
1 Marauding Captain
1 Power Giant
1 Quickdraw Synchron
2 Quillbolt Hedghog
1 Shield Warrior
1 Swift Scarecrow
1 Vylon Prism

Spells (10)
1 Bait Doll
1 Book of Moon
1 Dark Hole
1 Falling Current
1 Monster Reborn
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 One Day of Peace
1 One for One
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Reinforcement of the Army

Traps (9)
2 Call of the Haunted
1 Dimensional Prison
1 Draining Shield
1 Level Retuner
1 Magic Cylinder
1 Mirror Force
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Solemn Warning

Extra Deck (15)
1 Colossal Fighter
1 Gaia Knight, the Force of Earth
1 Junk Destroyer
1 Junk Gardna
1 Junk Warrior
1 Nitro Warrior
1 Red Dragon Archfiend
1 Red Nova Dragon
1 Scarred Warrior
1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Heroic Challenger - Excalibur
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
2 Number 39: Utopia
1 Wind-Up Zenmaines

Side Deck (15)
1 Neo-Spacian Grand Mole
1 Samurai Sword Baron
1 Thunder King Rai-Oh
1 Burial from a Different Dimension
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Pot of Duality
1 Scapegoat
1 Ceasefire
2 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Hero's Rule 2
1 Mirror of Oaths
1 Stygian Dirge
1 Wild Tornado

I didn't realize I ran so many different cards in the deck. Sorry 'bout the long list.

There are parts of this that I'd keep, but while Junk synchron is an Effective Synchro engine, the cards you're using to support it aren't...

I'd go for something more like this:

1 Chaos Sorcerer
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
2 Cyber Dragon
1 Quickdraw Synchron
3 Junk Synchron
2 Debris Dragon
1 Lonefire Blossom
1 Spore
1 Dandylion
1 Quillbolt Hedgehog
2 Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
2 Card Trooper
1 Level Eater
1 Effect Veiler

3 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Heavy Storm
1 Pot of Avarice
1 Dark Hole
1 Monster Reborn
1 Mind Control
1 Scapegoat
1 One for One
1 Foolish Burial
1 Reinforcement of the Army

2 Torrential Tribute
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Fiendish Chain
1 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment

1 Formula Synchron
1 Armory Arm
1 Ally of Justice Catastor
1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Junk Warrior
1 Drill Warrior
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Junk Destroyer
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Red Dragon Archfiend
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Red Nova Dragon
1 Shooting Star Dragon
1 Wind-Up Zenmaines
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn

Which I believe will work better.
Give that a go.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of £4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
